Getting back into a swamped kayak ia a areal balancing act, add in some rough water and it
can be out right difficult. To make re-entry more stable we built a counterbalance that easily
attaches to your North Water Paddle Float. This acts to stabilize your boat reducing the
chance of flipping the boat over on the opposite side. Once you are back in your boat it
drains easily and stores unnoticed attached to your Paddle Float.

only wool can.
